Current notions about Time according to the antinomy between what lasts while flowing at the same time, serves as a model that characterizes our psychoanalytic task, when considering the psychoanalytic situation expressed in the here and now interaction between analyst and patient within its interplay with the psychoanalytic process. The first could be understood as a transversal cutting edge of the experienced phenomena between both participants, while the second one, the process, would be connected with the longitudinal cutting edge of such a relationship. The Augustinian idea about time, a phenomena that entails a tridimensional present, in as much as it regards the present-passed, namely memory; the present-present namely perception and the present-future as the expectation of what is about to happen ; all this serves as a support to explore the interplay between these three modalities from the perspective of the psychoanalytic process. The case of a woman patient within a situation of analytic impassecontributes to illustrate clinically some of these aspects about timing.
